Episode 159: The Sticky Power of Shame

with Brodie Welch, L. Ac.

Shame, and the fear of it, can be such a powerful obstacle that it can stop us from doing all sorts of things we want to do, from going to the gym to sending out a newsletter.  So how can we identify and own our shame to break free from that paralysis?  In this solo episode, we dig into ways to escape the shame spiral and avoid getting locked down by it in the future.
